Last month we enjoyed our first International Hour of Prayer. We affectionately called it IHOP. We connected both audibly and visually with staff among our nine regional centers around the globe. Three other GNPI staff members joined us from locations in the US. We spent an hour in prayer for each other.
Some prayed in English, some in their native language. It was truly a “sweet hour of prayer.”
GNPI Board Chairman. Don Lucietta, and long time friend of the ministry, Boyce Mouton, were both with us for the event. We were all immeasurably blessed by the Holy Spirit as He united our hearts, even in cyberspace, using technology.
Here is what Boyce had to say. Click here to read Don’s thoughts on the morning and to watch a video of that first IHOP.
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote the “Concord Hymn” in 1837. In that famous poem he remarked that when the revolutionary forces fired on the British at North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts, they fired a shot “heard ‘round the world.”
On Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, I was privileged to be at a prayer meeting where prayers were literally heard around the world. Using the latest technology, GNPI in Joplin linked together people all over the world.
We could see them and they could see us. We could hear them and they could hear us.
Most important of all, however, is the wonderful truth that God could see and hear us too! Thanks GNPI for being on the cutting edge!
